Freki presents Sweden

Me and my girlfriend took a week long road trip trough Sweden..

We're both into nature so the primary focus was nature walks, but we did visit/stayed in a couple cities, so it's not only trees and lakes..

Anyways here we go...



The route..


We start off with the drive from Copenhagen to Karlskrona






Karlskrona

Final part is us going Beaver "hunting" on the Sandnäs peninsular..

We never did find any beavers, but we did find trees they have cut down











And finally the bridge back to Denmark..


The End..

As I said in the Nordic & Baltic section, the small towns/cities of Sweden look so well presented and very attractive! The nature shots are good too - shame you didn't get up to the north of Sweden as it really does get amazing up there.

Fantastic photos!

Swede!
Really strange that the only two bad weather pics are on the two bridges of Öresundsbron & Ölandsbron
The photos of this nature and these towns are truly stunning and this is a seriously professional presentation of these parts of my country!

Very nice, southern Sweden looks great, I'd like a holiday in a cabin in the woods on the shores of Vanern or some other lake.

What is Oland like? Which is the best to visit, Oland, Gotland, Bornholm or the Aland islands?

Personally I would say that Falsterbo, Skärgården
( The Stockholm Archepelago ) and Gotland are
the most precious and beautiful places to
visit in Sweden during the summer.
But Dalarna and the west coast
and Öland are precious jewels
as well mate!

Much like inland rural Sweden, but with a slightly more sandy coastline for the area..

Bornholm - you have the beaches, the cliffs, the forresty center rich on nature and all that the medival castle/history stuff..

( it was btw the last occupied area doing WW2 - the German's wouldn't surrender so the Russians had to force them to, then the Russians wouldn't leave at first, but eventually they did )
